إِنَّ لَكَ فِى ٱلنَّهَارِ سَبْحًا طَوِيلًا
Asad Quran Translation
whereas by day a long chain of doings is thy portion.
Malik Quran Translation
because, during the day you are hard pressed with worldly affairs.
Yusuf Ali Quran Translation
True there is for thee by day prolonged occupation with ordinary duties: 5759
A prophet of Allah, as a man, a member of a family, or a citizen, has many ordinary duties to perform; and his work may be made difficult and irksome in protecting those who listen to his preaching and are therefore molested and persecuted by the world. But while discharging all his ordinary duties, he should work as in the presence of Allah, and in all matters and at all times retain the sense of Allah's nearness. His work may be on earth, but his heart is in Heaven.
Mustafa Khattab Quran Translation
For during the day you are over-occupied ˹with worldly duties˺.
Piktal Quran Translation
Lo! thou hast by day a chain of business.
